Suzy Homemaker

It appears my husband is slightly confused about the person he married.  We've often run into the dilemma of me being rather messy and leaving my stuff laying around.  But for my defense, I generally stack things in piles - that's organized, right?  Anyway, last night he was frustrated with me because he pulled a shirt out of the closet and it had snags on it (it's one of those Under Armour shirts that are smooth and designed to keep you cool).  Apparently I'm supposed to know how to keep them from snagging in the wash!  Beats the heck out of me, its not like I purposely let it get snagged!  I'm always extra cautious about those kinds of shirts, heck, they can be pretty pricey.

Then, that led to why I haven't figured out how to stretch his jeans.  Yes, this sounds funny, but he doesn't mean in width :)  A few pair have shrunk slightly in length, again my fault!  However, I do not dry jeans and he even has two identical pairs where one shrunk and the other didn't - its a mystery!

Back to the point in which he is confused!  Never have I declared to be a Suzy Homemaker!  I'm not artsy fartsy and I'm sure not overly creative - my house isn't fully decorated after a year of living here because I just don't have that touch.  I'm the person that when something breaks, I rather go buy a new one then try to figure out how to fix it.  I'm not into Pinterest because I simply don't care about new or exciting things to do or try to make.  Every once in a while I may go out on a limb but I'm perfectly content with the status quo.  I don't have the interest in clipping coupons to save $.50 or make my own laundry detergent for fun! Its just not me!  And apparently my being a semi-retired female (that's the nice way of saying currently unemployed), I'm supposed to know all this stuff!


I guess I have now been challenged to step up to be that Suzy Homemaker I'm "supposed to be".

  1. This made me chuckle, especially since I look around the room and see piles of just my stuff laying around.

    The underarmor can get snagged on jean zippers. Or any zipper for that matter. I try to always make sure pant zippers, hoodies, etc. are zipped up before popping them in the wash.

    As far as the stretching of the jeans? Once the cotton shrinks, it shrinks. =) Warm or hot water will shrink them, cold will not.
    That's about all I've got.

SmartVest Review & CF Appointment

Well, here is the long awaited official review of my new SmartVest SQL.  I don't have any current or updated vests to compare this too, so my feed back is based upon what I like/dislike versus the old and out-dated vest.

Pros:
Weight - it is MUCH lighter than my ancient Hilrom Vest.  By all means, it isn't light but definitely a great improvement from my older model.  I can at least carry it myself!Comfort of vest - the fabric is much softer and less scratchy when wearing it.Technology - it has a digital screen, so I can set the time and know for sure how long I'm using it (the old one had a knob to turn).  Also, I can set different programs based on how long I want to use it, etc.  It's quieter!!  Will still doesn't enjoy watching TV with me while I vest, but I don't have to turn the TV to its max volume!  And, the dogs aren't scared of this one as much!There is only 1 hose...so I'm not tangled up :)And it comes with a rolling case (that looks like a re…

Hello?

I'm back!!!

Unfortunately, I've been MIA due to some family medical stuff.  We had quite a scare with my stepdad.  Thankfully, he is out of the hospital and recovering!  He will be staying with Will and I for a while so we can help nurse him back to health.


I never thought about losing a parent before.  As I grew up, I lost my grandparents and understood that I would have to worry about losing others as they too got older.  But, I never imagined being 30 and having to think about a parent leaving my life.  What a scary thought.  It definitely got me thinking.

Life is precious.  I can't sweat the small stuff.  I shouldn't worry about stupid things that really don't matter.  You never know how much time you have left in this world, so enjoy every moment that you can.  Have fun!  Let those that you love know that you love them.

I am not done with my parents.  I still need them ALL.  I don't think that will ever change though.

Pupdate

My little bully babies are growing up.  Sarge & Stella turned 6 at the beginning of July and T-Bone turned 8 at the end of July.

We celebrated Sarge & Stella's birthday at home with some special treats from the local pet store.  T-Bone got to be at his favorite place on his birthday (our cabin in WV).  Unfortunately I was a bad dog mom and forgot his birthday hat and treat, but he got extra loving and sang to multiple times.

T-Bone had his bi-annual check up just before his birthday and had a good report.  We are changing his eyedrops due to the formula change in what he was using - it was making his eyes red and itchy. And then, in his ear (not the one that just had surgery) we noticed a tick like thing in one of the folds. He got very irritated with us when we messed with it, so thankfully his appointment was the next day, so I figured I'd let them piss him off.  Turns out, its not a tick.  The vet said it looked just like the mass that he saw in his other ear cana…
